    I just purchase a 2005 Passat and the CD player does not work. I get Error message 1 and it spits out the CD. The radio and tape player work just fine. Does anyone know if I can fix this. I was really looking forward to having a CD player in my car, never had one before. And I am sure a dealership will charge me an arm an a leg to fix or replace.

    Is your CD just an audio disk? Because CD-R seems to work okay, but I have not been so fortunate with CD-RW disks. I get the same ERROR 1 message and CD is spit back out. Not sure about MP3 disks either. But I'd like to know if anyone's had success with a particular brand CD-RW disks, my Memorex ones are not working. Plz help! 2005 B5.5 passat.

    My 05 Passat Wagon does the same. We bought it used and the cd player worked for about three month and now it doesn't accept ANY cds.

Take all of the cd's out from the player. Than put them back in , it should reset. I had similar problem with my cd's and this solved the issue. My car is a 2001.1 glx passat . Good luch

This happened to my 2004 as well just last month. It kept spitting the CD out and giving me the error message. I took it into the dealership and since it was under warranty still, they just replaced the whole radio system.

I just bought a used 2001 VW Passat. I loaded the 6 cd changer in the trunk, and pushed the CD button in the interior audio system and it played just fine. I listened to the CD twice after driving and...

Its probably not really worth repairing such an old system.
I would replace it with something more modern with better sound and control.
CD s are kinda out these days when most of your music and nav are on your smart phone .
However, you could remove cd player, remove covers and using cotton buds and solvent, gently clean the pickups for the laser.
Its probably full of crud.
Good luck
